Covering Your Wednesday: Willie Nelson

I've never been a fan of Coldplay, and I'm not much of a fan for country so it's always hard to enjoy someone as authentic as Willie Nelson. I've been converted, however, or at least for one song. Chipotle Grill has started an awareness campaign focusing on the importance of consuming healthier and more sustainable food. Why Chipotle chose Willie to cover Coldplay's The Scientist is beyond a lot of us, but I'll be damned if it doesn't work to perfection. The commercial has been airing in theaters since this past September and this unique cover has spread like wildfire - I guess I'm a little late. Willie's iconic voice dominates over the guitar and drums. Hearing it with the commercial's images, however, creates an incredibly moving performance that has succesfully shown the "sourcing-conscious burrito chain's" feelings and mission. Enjoy one of the best covers of the past year below...
